How to drive a Saab two stroke, 2 stroke cross country
Tom Donney drives a two stroke Saab and explains how to use the "free wheeling" approach to help avoid melting pistons on a two stroke Saab.
These engines were designed to run on 95 octane fuel or more. Today's lean ethonal or low octane regular fuels can be hard on your engine. If you travel from state to state your fuel choices vary greatly which can affect your jetting choices. (Just as altitude changes your jetting too). I have driven my 1961 Saab (and other pre-1960 Saabs) from Iowa to all points in USA. Even into Mexico (with my family of 5) and Canada. My way is just "a way", not the only way.
NOTE: Non Saab people watch this and make comments like "too lean", "timing off" or "my two stroke runs all day at full throttle"
All I can say is good for you and your car/motorcycle/airplane/what the hell ever. Come follow me across country in your vehicle anytime you want! :)
Check out this youtube video named "black 93 2-stroke saab on Dyno" you can see this very Saab, which a few who seem to miss the point of this video and seem to think is "too lean" (850GT, 1st design triple carbs, oil Injected engine bored to 74mm) running on a Dyno and foggging for bugs. Just FYI, I also own a Mustang Chassis Dyno (have ran over 100 two stroke Dyno tests), and have a box of Saab jets that I bet cost more that the people who keep typing "it's too lean" paid for their 1st two cars! Plus I have had it and others fitted with AFR gauges...so "NO...IT IS NOT TOO LEAN" :) BTW Come to Dodge and we can take it, or other cool old Saabs for a spin. Safe Saab'in, tom donney

1974 Saab Sonett III 111 3 V4 Fiberglass Triumph MG Mini Classic EURO Car
I always wanted a Saab Sonett and here it is. http/;//www.1ownercarguy.com and this is a Great Investment car that Runs and is a Nice car & Would make a Great project for someone. They only made 2500 this year and 8500 total over 5 years with expensive gas these Classic Euro Sports Cars can only go UP in Value. The car is pretty much all original and will need restoration to be nice but it runs and drives the fuel pumo gave out and will need to be replaced to be drivable... To be a Gem it only needs some TLC painr and Vinyl for the interior..;-) Make sure and check out my videos there are over 660 of them on here Call Me anytime with Questions Nathan Wratiskaw AKA 1 Owner Car Guy 406 544 6919
The 1970 redesign of the Sonett V4, named the Sonett III, was initially undertaken by Sergio Coggiola, but Gunnar A. Sjögren altered it to fit the existing chassis without expensive manufacturing-line changes. Hinged rear-window glass replaced the Sonett II/V4 rear compartment hatch door. With the mandate for a "bulge-less" hood, the engine compartment opening evolved into a small front popup panel, resulting in more limited access than in the Sonett V4. Extensive engine work required the removal of the entire front hood section.
To help adapt the car to U.S. market tastes, the Sonett III featured a floor-mounted shifter (instead of the Sonett V4 column-mounted shifter) and optional dealer-installed air conditioning. Like the Opel GT, the Sonett III's hidden headlamps were operated manually using a lever. US safety regulations required new bumpers after 1972, significantly detracting from its Italian-inspired design.
While the 1970 and 1971 model years initially had the same 1500 cc Ford V4 engine as the Sonett V4, emission control requirements reduced the available horsepower. The model years 1971 to 1974 of the Sonett III used the 1700 cc Ford V4, but to meet increasingly strict Federal regulations, net power output remained the same as the 1500 cc engine, at 65 horsepower (48 kW). Still, the Sonett III accelerated from 0--100 km/h (0--63 mph) in 13 seconds, and—due to a higher differential gear ratio (42 teeth on the ring gear and 9 teeth on the pinion gear) than the standard 95/96 transmission (39:8)—achieved a top speed of 165 km/h (103 mph), aided by a low 0.31 drag coefficient.
Disappointing sales, especially during the 1973 oil crisis, lead Saab to end production in 1974. A total of 8,368 Sonett IIIs were manufactured between 1970 and 1974
